- ✨"People are hard to hate close up. Move in." -Brene Brown ✨ . . I'm and thoroughly enjoying Brene Brown's new book "Braving the Wilderness." I cannot recommend it enough. Exploring the heart of belonging, she tackles what I have come to see as our most pressing need as a society - to move past polarization and isolation of thought. I dream of better world for our children and believe creating one requires grappling with the tough issues illuminated in this book. Thank you Brene for this gift 🙏 @brenebrown . . . #bravingthewilderness #loveandbelonging #ourfuture #diversityofthought

- When asked what my deepest fear was, I never expected to say "To be still." And so the past month has been just that. I have sat myself down on the days I felt like running the most and encouraged my mind to engage with my heart. And it's hard. Because I am starting to feel the things I have numbed with busyness. Things that cause my fists to tighten, my eyes to close and my jaw to tighten. As I cautiously search through the hallways of my heart, I see a familiar being in the distance. My stomach sinks as I slowly walk closer. Tears form. Dread breathes down my neck. I see him clearly now. Hello, Anxiety. We meet again. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ And I am angry. I'm Frustrated. I'm beside myself. What the hell is he doing here anyways?! I had worked so hard to get rid of him. So I thought. But as I replayed the tape I realized that although I changed the locks and threw away the key, I never actually addressed Anxiety directly. I never told it to pack its bag and go. Basically, my solution was to never be home. It was to be so busy that I forgot my Fears were still sitting on the sofa waiting for me. All that running made me exhausted. For the first time in a long time I started to feel depressed. My health started to fail. I lost my joy. I had run to the end of myself and realized it was time to come home. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ So this season of my life has been about walking in the door despite the tears in my eyes and dread in my stomach. I have been spending time facing each fear and anxiety head on. And it has been terrifying, but beautiful. This is the unglamorous side of #selfcare we don't talk about. It's not all about hot tea, a good book, meditation, daily affirmations and treating yourself. Sometimes it's about taking the time to face those fears that are waiting for you on your couch. It's about valuing yourself enough to do what it takes to reclaim your life. It's about loving yourself enough to make the residence that is your heart a home again. Or perhaps, for the first time. ❤️

- Throwback-Thursday 🌎 We Are The World 📚🌟🌎 I would say the biggest transformation for our family occurred during our Japan Years, 2003-08. Our daughters attended an All-Girls school, the International School of the Sacred Heart, Tokyo. The school stressed a beautiful blend of high academic performance with a strong emphasis on global and societal contribution. “What will you do with this gift of knowledge?” Every day of the school year, they wore uniforms of plaid skirts with crisp white shirts, except for my favourite day: One World Day. On this day, the girls, representing 45 nations, celebrated their home country and wore their country’s national dress. My daughters represented Canada in the Parade of Nations, proudly sporting the Roots Canadian Olympic gear. I loved One World Day, and I knew from our very first experience that my daughters’ lives, and their world views, were changed for good. Later in life, when they heard the word Sweden, they would see Olivia’s face. Argentina; Julietta. Pakistan; Sara. These school years enriched each of us. One year I was appointed by the Headmistress to be Chair of the Parents Advisory Committee. It was an honour, but, oh, I was nervous! How would I navigate the different beliefs, religions, and cultures that underscored the voices? But once I realized the Universal Truth that Melinda Gates so clearly states, “that every parent simply wants the best for their child” - education, equality, joy, love, acceptance, growth - then everything fell into place. The years at this school changed my life forever. My world opened, and I opened. I learned not only of others’ lives and other cultures, but also I learned to hear my own voice - to celebrate my own culture, and my own self worth. “It’s like a Symphony; Everyone plays a piece, and there are melodies in each one of us. Oh, it’s Glorious.” ❤️🌎❤️ #letyourlifespeak #globalcitizen #writinglife #memoir #mywritinglife #bethechange #internationalliving #expatlife #inspiration #liveyourbestlife #beautifulliving #leadership #education #motherhood #schoolofgreatness #choosetomatter #parenthood #unwomen #bravingthewilderness #leanin #risingstrong #bigmagic #supersoul #throughhereyes

- Our wants don’t get met consistently. Our standards do. But we MUST back up those standards with rituals. -tony robbins For example— Moving my body, getting outside, journaling, good music, meditation and prayer, setting realistic goals and to do and to don’t lists, logged off time with my family, a clean house, and good skin care and self care routines are all part of my daily rituals to make my wants and desires happen. Standards are set high and I move closer daily. 🙌🏻 Have you thought about your wants, your standards, your dreams? Do you have rituals set in place to get there? If you need some guidance on self awareness and aren’t clear what you want, be sure to check out the link in my bio for some help! :)

- We had the privilege of seeing the great @brenebrown at #inbound17 this year. This book is an important read for everyone who interacts with people, uses social media or ever feels lonely. (So basically, everyone.) “Stop walking through the world looking for confirmation that you don’t belong. You will always find it because you’ve made that your mission. Stop scouring people’s faces for evidence that you’re not enough. You will always find it because you’ve made that your goal. True belonging and self-worth are not goods; we don’t negotiate their value with the world. The truth about who we are lives in our hearts. Our call to courage is to protect our wild heart against constant evaluation, especially our own. No one belongs here more than you.”

- “People are hard to hate close up,” -Brene Brown . . Agreed (for the most part, and not excusing certain behaviors either)... —�—� My biggest privilege as a shrink is getting to see people close up and helping them see each other, and so beyond grateful to those who are courageous enough to do this kind of work, call in this kind of perspective into their lives, and open themselves up to me and each other. —�— I’m truly blown away by it and often feel like the luckiest person around to be able to share such gems that people extract from within 💎 💎 💎 —�—� To everyone who gets close up...thank you!

- I’ve just finished BRAVING THE WILDERNESS by Brene Brown. .. Its sooo good y’all!!! .. I just won’t be able to find the words to bring justice to the impactful insight within the book’s pages…it’s just that good! 😍 . So my best advice is that you get your hands on a copy and read it for yourself. Or even better-get the audio and the hard copy and some sticky-notes…some markers…some highlighters… ✏️✏️✏️ . Get yourself a quiet space and a good cup or coffee if you can…. ☕️☕️☕️ . And dive into it. Let it wash over you. Let it soak in. And then…if you are like me…maybe read it again. 😍😍😍 . Happy reading…happy listening…happy day! xo 😘🌸☀️👍🏻 . #brenebrown #bravingthewilderness #christinereads #belonging #mayaanelouquote #braving #strongback #softfront #wildheart

- I had to take my son to the ER last night (he had a sudden attack of croup), and this little lady wouldn't sleep for the neighbour- and we got home at 2:30am! Needless to say, we will ALL be napping today! And doing a whole lot of nothing! But first, I'm going to try sneak in a few pages before my eyes close. 😊 Happy reading, everyone! #bookstagram #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #booknerd #booklover #booklove #bookaddict #read #books #livres #livre #instaread #favouritebooks #beautifulbooks #readtolive #igreads #brenebrown #bravingthewilderness
